Charleston STEM Festival

When: Sat., Feb. 6, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2016

STEM is a national education initiative that encourages students to explore all of the cool things associated with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and Charleston’s STEM festival is a day-long event celebrating smarts with exhibits, activities, and, of course, food trucks. Sound nerdy? Think again. The event drew a crowd of 1,500 in 2014 and grew to 7,500 last year, with over 50 exhibits. This year, attendees can expect to see presentations from local tech industries — think Google — along with activities like Rip Racin’ Robots. There will also be info on solar cooking, coding, music, rockets, and slime. Nationally touring comedian Chris Duffy will keep the crowd entertained.
